    Michelle Rodriguez to Star in Gender-Swap Action Thriller TOMBOY


    [​IMG]

    Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez will go under the knife for Tomboy, A Revenger's Tale, the gender-swapping action movie to be directed by Walter Hill. Sigourney Weaver is already on board to also star in the project. The project initially had Frieda Pinto involved.

    The script, written by Hill from a story by Denis Hamill, centers on an ace assassin who is double-crossed by gangsters and falls into the hands of rogue surgeon known as "The Doctor," who turns him into a woman. The hitman (now a hitwoman) sets out for revenge, aided by a nurse named Johnnie, who also has secrets. Rodriguez is to play the hitman while Weaver is the scalpel-wielding doctor when the cameras roll November 9 in Vancouver.

    Tomboy will mark the first movie Rodriguez has toplined in quite a while. The actress is known for her work within large casts, mostly in the action and sci-fi sphere with the Fast franchise, the Resident Evil movie series, the Machete flicks and Avatar.

    Heh, I think they missed the opportunity for an A-list actor to crossdress and play a trans woman here...

    Can see why Pinto dropped out though. She's not butch enough for anyone to believe she was ever a man.

    Wait, being turned into a woman is something to take revenge over? Why aren't the feminists protesting this message?

    I hate this actress. She always plays the tough girl in everything she's in.
